Over/Under Totals for Bellator 158

Bellator-Michael-Page-640x480-Reproducao-SherdogBellator 158: London Date: July 16, 2016 Arena: O2 Arena City: London, England Bellator is in London on Saturday, July 16 and will be airing on Spike TV with tape delay at 9pm ET, featuring a five fight main card. If interested in wagering on any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakerss. My Over/Under Totals are: Welterweight bout: Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos (+675) vs Michael Page (-785) Gabe’s Thoughts: Michael Page is going to win this fight, I don’t believe that’s a question. I think the question is: when? And I think the answer: within the very first round of action, and likely within the first minute or two. I don’t think “Cyborg” is going to be able to compete with Page on the feet and I expect it will only be a matter of time until Page puts the Brazilian away with another highlight reel T/KO finish. I would say Santos’ only shot at winning this fight is to catch Page in a submission, and if that were to happen, it would need to happen very early in the fight, so this play on the Under 1.5 would still come through. That said, I have a very hard time seeing the Brazilian catch Page with anything at all. I expect this fight to be a walk in the park for Page, as he continues to make noise in the Bellator welterweight division. Gabe’s Call: Page by T/KO (strikes, 1:17 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Under 1.5 rounds (-295) 2.95u to win 1u Bantamweight bout: James Gallagher (-365) vs Mike Cutting (+328) Gabe’s Thoughts: Regardless of who gets his hand raised in this match-up, I believe both fighters’ are most likely to win by first round submission. In this pairing, I think Gallagher wins 8 out of 10 times, which goes to say that I think he holds some betting value at his current offering price of -365. That said, I see more value in the Under 1.5 rounds Total at +113, as I think this fight ends in under a round and a half more often than not. Gabe’s Call: Gallagher by Submission (rear naked choke, 3:04 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Under 1.5 rounds (+113) 3u to win 3.39u
